Spring School Games - Well done Croydon Schools!

Posted in News

We are proud to publish details of the results achieved by Croydon Primary and Secondary Schools during the recent Spring School Games Level 3 Finals.

School Games events are run every Spring and Summer culminating in a multisport finals day at Crystal Palace National Sports Centre, with over 2000 children competing in last years events from the 33 London Boroughs. 

Our borough is currently in third place in the Secondary School Shield standings due to the number of Croydon teams actively participating in School Games events. We are also currently in 9th place for the open competition Jubilee Trophy due the results we have achieved so far!

So well done to all the Croydon Schools that participated at these Spring Finals!

We also give a special mention to all our sports leaders who worked so hard to offer participants a memorable experience alongside local secondary schools and sports clubs.
